Thank you all so much for your input.  The feedback was perfect.  I
did not realizethis may be difficult under any circumstances.

I am very familiar with PowerPoint and will try the open office

I can not believe that there isn't a GUI programing tool that will
allow me to build GUI apps - just like I use Dreamweaver to build a
web page ... a WYSIWYG builder that does a few simplet things and
calls other programs ...

Oh well .... no silver bullet!

Thanks again
